  1. Happy New Year to you and your family too Marv!

    Sorry for the late reply, but you know that I haven't been on the PDF as much as I had been in the past. I check in to see what everyone is up to, but I don't always have the time to chime in. I don't have a smart phone as of yet, so all of my PDFing has to be done sitting in front of the computer. Everything is going well here, as it hopefully is with you and yours. I saw that you bought your daughter a new Honda Civic. A wonderfully reliable car that will make her commute/traveling a breeze. Speaking of breezes, I see that you posted a pic of your local weather. After the Arctic cold snap that we just went through up here, consider me jealous! LOL! Thanks for the REP, which I'll gladly return when the forum gives me the chance.
  2. You're right Marv, we got slammed, and it isn't over yet.
    Yesterday we had a high of 54 which was wonderful, but we are expecting to get another 2-4 inches of snow overnight.
    As soon as we stop getting snow I'll be alright. Mother Nature is teasing/testing us this year, but hopefully the end of winter is in sight. LOL!
  3. You guys sure got slammed this winter. Even my cousin in Atlanta had a winter like no other. It seems like the only place that escaped the horrors of this winter was south Florida. Hopefully you'll thaw out soon.
  4. Thanks Marv, I'm doing well.
    I hope that all is well with you and your family down in sunny Florida.
    Up here, we just need this long, hard winter to end! LOL!
    I'll be fine once we stop getting snow. I'm running out of room to put it!
    I can handle the cold weather better than I can having to shovel/drive in the snow.
  5. It sounds like you had a great time and a great game at the Boca Municipal course Marv!

    Your Gators won last night, but Northwestern couldn't hold on to a 3 point lead in the 4th, and lost 40-30.
    My Bears play the Saints here at home at noon central. Hopefully that will have a better outcome for the home team!

    P.S. - Make sure to post some pics of the cart girl in the "Post One Random Picture From Your Day (revived)" thread. LOL!
  6. I was hoping for a Wildcat victory. Urban Meyer is not one of my favorites after the way he left Florida. The Gators looked good. Next week is the big test against LSU. I had a great golf game. I played Boca Municipal which is one if the nicest courses around here. Unlike most courses in Florida which are very flat, Boca Muni has rolling hills on almost every hole. The last time I played this course was three years ago when I tore my rotator cuff on the first tee. It's a long course and I guess I tend to swing harder when playing on it. I tried to not swing too hard and just played my regular game. After a few beers it didn't matter. The cart girl was hot and skimpily dressed.
  7. Hey Marv, I hope that you shot a great round of golf today out on the links!

    Yup, it's definitely great not having to choose between watching your football team and playing golf.
    As I type this, the Gators are leading the Razorbacks 10-7 in the 2nd quarter.
    The big game up here is the Ohio State-Northwestern game, which just started on ABC. They've been hyping it up around here all week long.
    Go Gators! Go Wildcats!
  8. Hey Kevin, Anything can happen in the SEC. I don't know if you've been following, but the Gators lost their QB and best DT for the season. I like the replacement QB. I'm off to play a round of golf. I like evening football games. I don't have to choose between watching football and playing golf.
  9. As far as settings go for my H-2000 let's start with the cam.
    I tried using the red cam, and the blue cam (which I use on my single Eliminator pedal), but wound up liking the default black cam the best.
    Setting the spring tension is tricky to describe because there is no real number system to correlate it with. Like, I can't say that I have it set at a "6" or something.
    I guess that I could say that I have it set at "X" amount of clicks from completely loose, but I don't remember exactly what that number is.
    What I try to do is to match the spring tension of the H-2000 to that of my Eliminator. I play mostly heel down, and I like the footboards to stay with the bottom of my feet.
    I keep the springs just tight enough to provide that amount of resistance.
    Out of the 3 powershifter settings, I have mine set at the mid position.

    You'll have to mess around with it a bit in order to find the settings that feel right, but once you find your settings, the H-2000 stand rocks!
  10. Well Marv, what can I say? We definitely both have great taste when it comes to our gear. LOL!
    I know that we truly love our classic/hard rock. Both Pearl and Paiste allow us to achieve that perfect "rock sound" we have in our heads, and have heard on our favorite records for years.

    Let me tell you that the H-2000 stand will make a wonderful birthday gift for you come November.
    It certainly was a great deal, and it was smart of you to take advantage of it while it was being offered.
